RIM Blackberry credit, this phone is unlike anything I've ever seen. It's certainly not keeping in line with any of their past products, nor is it a copy of your standard Samsung/HTC handset. Kudos for hardware innovation.
Will anyone (at least anyone not on a site called "Crackberry") care though is the real question. This might have made major waves in 2010. 4 years later it may be too little, too late.
